Mwamba RFC’s fly-half, Lucas Oppal, has undergone successful knee surgery, the club confirmed.

The corrective procedure aims to address issues with his troublesome knee. The club expressed confidence in Oppal’s ability to approach the recovery process with the same tenacity he brings to the field and wished him a smooth and speedy recovery.

“Hey #Rfamily, we are pleased to announce that Lucas Oppal has successfully undergone corrective surgery to address his troublesome knee. We’re confident that Lucas will tackle the road to recovery with the same tenacity he brings to the field. We wish him a smooth recovery,” reads a statement by Mwamba.

Oppal has a rich rugby history, having played for the Kenya under-16 national team in Paris, France, in 2013. He later showcased his leadership skills by captaining Laiser Hill to victories in the East Africa, nationals, and Floodlights tournaments in 2014 and 2015.

His journey continued as he captained Strathmore’s Catullus before making his breakthrough to the senior team, Strathmore Leos.


While representing the Leos, Oppal contributed to their success in the Kenya Cup and KRU Championship, playing a pivotal role in helping the team earn promotion back to the top tier. His talent also earned him a spot in the Kenya Under 20 team under the guidance of coach Paul Odera.

In January 2023, Oppal returned to Mwamba RFC, continuing his rugby journey with the club.
